JIM CARREY says he was “sickened” by the way the Oscar crowd gave WILL SMITH a standing ovation when he won Best Actor, after he’d just slapped CHRIS ROCK.  He also said Chris should sue Will for $200 million.

 

WILL SMITH’s mother Carolyn was surprised to see him slap CHRIS ROCK.  She says, quote, “He is a very even, people person.  That’s the first time I’ve ever seen him go off.”  She also says she told him to rest and take a vacation.
